The TCP on District Heating and Cooling (DHC) including Combined Heat and Power (CHP) was founded in 1983. It deals with the design, performance and operation of DHC and CHP systems as powerful tools for energy conservation and the reduction of environmental impacts of supplying heat.
Hybrid energy networks, i.e. the integration of electricity, heat and gas networks, can make a decisive contribution to optimizing the energy system. The IEA DHC Annex TS3 analyses the potentials and challenges of hybrid energy networks from the perspective of the district heating / cooling system. This includes the analysis of relevant technologies and synergies, an assessment of the different methodological approaches and tools, the analysis of case studies as well as the development of suitable business models and regulations.
The aim of the IEA DHC Annex TS4 is to identify the possibilities of digitalization and the integration of digital process for district heating and cooling. To this end, the Annex TS4 establishes a platform for industrial and scientific experts to strengthen international cooperation and networking and the exchange of experience of national research and development activities.
The aim of the Annex TS2 is to implement low-temperature district heat networks (LT-DH or 4GDH, the 4th generation of district heating). Therefore, the Annex TS2 is a platform in which the prerequisites for the implementation are established with international experts.
